Playmobil Advent Calendar Competition

The Spooky Librarians have two advent calendars this year: the "Knight's Duel," aimed at boys, and the "Unicorn Paradise," geared toward girls. We're going to look at each day's offering and compare and contrast. Join us and vote for your favorite, won't you?

December 18th

Knight's Duel: a Knight! An actual knight!
Brian's take: A raven-haired knight in Germanic plate mail, complete with broadsword. Ta-da!

Unicorn Paradise: a skirt.
Jeanne's take: Well. Um. Normally I am all about the ankle-to-floor-length skirts, but this was a bit of a letdown. Talk about restricting one's movement! Now the figure can hardly get around!

Knight: Kill a dragon for you, milady?
Lady: Actually, could I just borrow your sword so I can do it myself? You can have this skirt if you like.

Which do you prefer?

So were we looking at this girl in her underwear before?? That knight's a little girly in a boxy way. I think it's his Diana Ross hairdo.

I guess we were. Ew!

Also, the knight now suffers from helmet hair. Not much of an improvement, really.
